Herve Hoguet operated in Paris, France from around 1965 to 1985. Amazingly Hoguet often operated in the shadows of more well known fashion designers. Those designers are said to included famous fashion brands such as Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent. Herve came from a long line of jewelers starting with his grandfather Joseph Hoguet Duroyaume and followed by Marius Hoguet then after Herve came Anne Hoguet. Each of which enjoyed crafting not only jewelry but fans as well. So much so that Herve actually opened a fan museum in Paris which can still be visited today!
